With the coronavirus pandemic dominating all our newspapers and headlines, it'd be pretty difficult to have not heard about the deadly virus that has been sweeping across our globe.

But, there is seemingly one person who somehow missed this memo - Jared Leto emerged from a retreat a little confused by the current state of the world, as he had apparently not heard a single thing about the ongoing pandemic.

Keep scrolling for the full story, and to see his befuddled reaction for yourself...

Let's start from the beginning...

The deadly coronavirus, or COVID-19, as medical experts are referring to it, has taken our planet hostage, and is showing no signs of letting go anytime soon.

But what exactly is COVID-19, and just how dangerous is it?

According to the World Health Organization, COVID-19 is a new strain of coronaviruses that had not been previously been identified in humans.

The virus primarily affects the respiratory system.

And common symptoms include fever, coughing, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties.

But, in more severe cases...

And in patients who are elderly and have existing health issues, the virus can lead to pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure, and even death.

Close to 100,000 people all over the world have now been infected with the virus...

via: Getty

183,738, to be precise. And, devastatingly, a staggering 7,180 more have been reported to have died from the illness.

It's a dire situation.

And many have been asking the same thing - Where did this virus actually come from?

Well, the virus is believed to have originated in Wuhan, China.

via: Getty

On December 31st, 2019, China alerted the World Health Organization of several flu-like cases in Wuhan.

And where did it come from?

via: Getty

Many different theories have been proposed, but it is now widely believed to have originated from the sale of meat from wild animals, especially bats, where the virus has been discovered in the past.

And, despite infected people being quarantined...

The virus was alarmingly quick to spread, with cases being reported as far away as Thailand just one week later.

It only took a month for the World Health Organization to declare a global emergency...

via: Getty

Which was done in an attempt to combat the virus and enable countries to put in strict measures to prevent any further spread.

But these attempts were to little avail.

via: Getty

Because, fast forward 3 months, and nearly every major country in the world has been infected by the virus, with some of the worst affected being Japan, South Korea, Russia, Italy, Iran, and Spain.

World leaders have been left with little choice but to bring their countries to a total stand-still...

via: Getty

And many have banned large and crowded events, and any travel to and from infected countries.

Italy has even gone into total lockdown...

via: Getty

Leaving their streets completely deserted.

And it didn't take long for the virus to reach us here in the States.

via: Getty

Our first case of COVID-19 was confirmed in Washington in late January after a citizen returned from a trip to China.

And, since then, the numbers have been rising at a frightening pace.

via: Getty

Since the first COVID-19 patient in Washington, there have been 4,743 more confirmed cases across the country and ninety-three deaths.

Several cities have declared states of emergencies...

via: Getty

And, on Friday, President Trump declared a national emergency to combat the coronavirus pandemic, freeing up $50 billion in federal funding and promising a screening website and drive-by tests.

His move came after the World Health Organization confirmed COVID-19 as a pandemic last week.

via: Getty

FYI... A pandemic is a disease that is spreading in multiple countries around the world at the same time.

He also announced a temporary travel ban...

via: Getty

Which prohibits any travel between the United States and any European country, including the United Kingdom and Ireland.

So, amid all this chaos and panic...

via: Getty

The coronavirus has obviously been the main thing to dominate our headlines this past month.

Everywhere you look...

via: Getty

The face of coronavirus looms, in our newspapers, in our televisions, and in our radios.

It is literally everywhere.

via: Getty

And everyone is talking about it.

So, as you can imagine...

via: Getty

It'd be pretty difficult to have not heard about the pandemic. Even if you are avoiding the news, you're bound to have heard from word of mouth about any COVID-19 updates.

Well, there is apparently one person who has somehow managed to miss all of the pandemic's news and updates...

via: Getty

And it's all thanks to an isolated, twelve-day retreat.

Jared Leto recently returned from his twelve-day meditative retreat in the middle of the desert...

via: Getty

The actor and musician had absolutely no contact with anyone else and remained fully isolated the entire time. How very Jared Leto.

But, while he was away, finding himself through meditation and isolation...

via: Getty

Leto had actually missed any major COVID-19 updates.

So he reemerged from his retreat a little confused, to say the least.

Taking to Twitter, he wrote: "Wow. 12 days ago I began a silent meditation in the desert. We were totally isolated. No phone, no communication, etc. We had no idea what was happening outside the facility."

He is now hastily catching up on what has been going on.

That might take a while, Jared. He continued: "Walked out yesterday into a very different world. One that’s been changed forever. Mind blowing - to say the least. I’m getting messages from friends and family all around the globe and catching up on what’s going on."

He sends his love to everyone affected.

And urged people to stay indoors and to stay safe. The coronavirus pandemic has completely changed and altered the world as we know it, and has brought many things to a standstill - The world of Hollywood included.
